I've never taken the Metro before. I'll be going to the game on Sunday. How long does it usually take to get there from the Long Beach station?

From Long Beach, it's definitely worth it in my opinion. Drops you off right at Staples Center's doorstep.

Be careful if you drink a lot before you get on the train. There are no restrooms! I got snockered in Long Beach one time and was with a group of about 15 people. We got on the train and 3 or 4 of us were looking for a place to piss after drinking large volumes of beer. It was a LONG ride and a few of us wanted to get off a few times but when the stations were being announced at each stop (Compton Station, Rosa Parks Station, Watts Station, etc.), we decided to stay on. By the time we finally got there, me and two other guys found relief behind a dumpster in the alley around the corner from the station across from Staples.
Just a helpful hint for you first timers!

I take the #10 all the time. It's really fast, especially if you live close to where it hops on the 10 at Pico/Bundy. You might keep an eye out on bigbluebus.com to see if there are any detours because of the bike race. The other thing is they only come every 30 minutes on Sunday, but Big Blue usually sticks to its schedule very well.

Is anyone familiar with the Green Line leaving Norwalk Station? Is it safe to park there?

It would be the downtown location. Thank you.

It actually stops in South Park. Hope and 12th Street is probably your best bet.
